About Laurie Smith

Our family has been coming to Fripp Island for years for vacations. We decided to purchase and make it our home away from home!

Laurie Smith purchased this house in 2016

Why Laurie Smith chose Fripp Island

Fripp Island, SC. is a gated community and private island north of Hilton Head. There is plenty to do on the island... rent a kayak, a bike or hop in a golf cart and go exploring! There are miles of bike paths, nature trails, fishing and crabbing docks, tennis courts, 2 golf courses and beautiful sandy beaches to name a few. Go site-seeing and visit our neighboring cities such as historic Beaufort (15 mi.), Hunting Island (right over the bridge), Hilton Head (45 mi.) or Charleston SC (90min)

We arrived at the gate and there was no parking/entry pass left for us.

The house smelled musty as well as the towels.

There was no dishwasher soap and only 2 rolls of TP.

Owner advertises that the golf cart was included but it didn't work. Even though she had been there a week prior and knew it didn't work, she didn't let us know but offered to rent us one once I notified her.

The Wifi never worked. Laurie said she called the cable company, but the Network name never showed up.

There were 3 hornets in the house. She sent an Orkin man, but he said he would spray after we left.

Overall, we were felt that the property wasn't as advertised and were quite disappointed.

Owner's Response: Dear Heather, I apologized that the gate pass wasn't ready, that was an mis-step on my part. From the time you called, I called the gate and within 3 minutes your pass was ready... sorry for that inconvenience. Not sure why one of the towels were musty, possible the cleaning lady hadn't dried it completely, I'm sorry. Regarding the hornet, I have a contract with a pest control firm as do most of the owners on the island who come out on a regular manor to control any possible bug/insect issues. I called them immediately and they contacted you for appointment immediately. I was on the phone with the internet provider as soon as you told me and even had them reset everything. Again, I am so sorry the weather wasn't the best for you and it wasn't enjoyable for you that week. -Laurie

Great value

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying on Fripp, enjoying the historic and beautiful island. Laurie's house afforded us a reasonably-priced lodging, good location (nothing is very far away on Fripp), with a very well-stocked kitchen. The living room furniture is comfortable and the house nicely decorated. We hope to return!

We rented this house with our friends. It was my first visit to Fripp Island and it did not disappoint. We only got a couple of days before we were evacuated due to Hurricane Irma but our small trip was still amazing. Laurie is the best and the house is perfect. Pool right down the road short golf cart ride to the beach. We had a great trip and we will come back. Just not during hurricane season this time. Bonus the deck is perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine and conversing with good friends.

This is the spot to go! Look no farther !

  • 5 of 5

100% recommend to anyone! Laurie was amazing too! When we got there we realized we needed an extra parking pass, I texted her explaining, no joke in 30 seconds the problem was solved!! That's excellent customer service if you ask me. The house was great! Exactly as described. Clean and had a good variety of dishes pots and pans to use throughout our week. The golf cart was a great added bonus and a must have while you are there. All of the beach access points have parking for Golf Carts and made it much quicker and easier for you navigate around. But they do have a rental place on the island you can rent extra golf carts, scooters, boats, and kayaks. I highly recommend renting a boat, very affordable, we drove our self on our own dolphin sightseeing adventure. The deer on the island.... never seen anything like it, they are all so friendly, one walked right up to our 4year old daughter and just wanted some attention just like a cat would do!!! We enjoyed our stay and plan to come back twice a year now. This was truly a great place to stay with a wonderful house and a wonderful owner. A+

Sweet house tucked in quiet Sawgrass

  • 5 of 5

Nice home with comfortable deck in a quiet Fripp neighborhood is a great base for Fripp family fun. The provided golf cart ensures that all of Fripp is easily accessible. The community private pool around the corner and the close proximity to the marsh boardwalk are added bonuses to this home.
